Further information

A worm egg screen is suitable for all species of animals. The collection kits are standard for all animals, however the screening process varies slightly depending on the species. We will take care of this once received into the lab.

The purpose of screening is to determine if there is an internal parasite burden of mature, egg laying worms at the time the sample was taken. If so, the species of parasite will be identified, so that targeted and appropriate treatment can be given. Our worm egg screen is very comprehensive, providing accurate identification as well as quantitative results for each species of parasite where appropriate.

A one-day sample of the first faecal motion of the day is required for this screen. The kits come with full instructions of the requirements and we recommend they are read and followed exactly.

This kit is for 1 animal and includes:

  • 1 padded envelope
  • 1 white laboratory request form and instruction sheet
  • 1 clear sample collection box in a resealable write-on panelled bag
  • 1 scented bag

All parasites are reported with their English and Latin names, which is useful if veterinary intervention is required.

If running a worm count for dogs or other companion animals, the screen will identify and quantify of all species present within the family groups of:

  • Ascarids
  • Hookworms
  • Whipworms
  • Oesophageal worms
  • All species of cestodes (Tapeworms*)
  • Protozoa– Coccidia

The screen, as standard, also reports on:

  • Undigested lipids (qualitative analysis)
  • Undigested microscopic food particles (qualitative analysis)

*Tapeworms are very intermittent shedders and do not always show on a worm egg screen.  If present, the species will be identified. As they may not have been present when the sample was taken, it is advisable to use regular tapeworm specific treatment.

This screen comes with complete sample collection instructions.  

All parasites are reported with their English and Latin names, which is useful if veterinary intervention is required.

If running this screen for a reptile or exotic animal, the screen will identify and quantify of all species present within the family groups of:

  • Pinworms
  • Ascarids
  • Hookworm
  • Hepatic worms
  • Cestodes (Tapeworms*)

The screen also covers Identification and quantification of the following protozoans:

  • Coccidia
  • Balantidium
  • Nyctotherus

*Tapeworms are very intermittent shedders and do not always show on a worm egg screen.  If present in the sample, the species will be identified.

All parasites are reported with their English and Latin names, which is useful if veterinary intervention is required.

If running this screen for an equine, the screen will identify and quantify all species present within the family groups of:

  • Redworms
  • Ascarids
  • Pinworms
  • Stomach worms
  • Neck worms
  • Cestodes (Tapeworms*)

The screen, as standard, also reports on:

  • Protozoa– Eimeria lukarti
  • Undigested excess fibre (qualitative analysis) which can indicate dietary or teeth related issues

*  If tapeworm segments are present in the sample, we will report on these however, due to the irregular shedding pattern of the equine tapeworm, a negative result should not be taken as a zero presence.  We recommend at least annual worming for tapeworm.

All parasites are reported with their English and Latin names, which is useful if veterinary intervention is required.

  • All species of gastrointestinal nematodes–Identification and quantification of all species, which includes Haemunchus contortus (barber pole)
  • Cestodes (Tapeworms*)
  • Protozoa– two species of coccidia

*Tapeworms are very intermittent shedders and do not always show on a worm egg screen.  If present, the species will be identified.

This screen is suitable for individual animals kept alone, or individual animals of concern.  Groups of animals should be screened using the ‘Flock/Herd Worm Egg Count’ kit

All parasites are reported with their English and Latin names, which is useful if veterinary intervention is required.

  • Nematodes–Identification and quantification of all species which notably includes Syngamus trachea (Gapeworm) amongst others
  • Cestodes (Tapeworms*)
  • Protozoa– Eimeria

This is an individual test for one bird kept alone or a bird of concern.  Two or more birds should be tested using the ‘Flock/Herd Worm Egg Count’ kit 

*Tapeworms are very intermittent shedders and do not always show on a worm egg screen.  If present, the species will be identified.

We have an excellent breeders programme, which often enables a reduction in the use of chemicals during pregnancy and early weeks/months of life.  If you are interested in further information, please visit our breeders specific page to discuss the appropriate times to screen based on your bitch/queen’s circumstances.

Most breeders factor in the cost of the tests to the price of the pup or kitten, so the overall cost is transparent.
